"Never smile at a crocodile is a two colour reduction print, done for my daughter Laura when she was in Australia. First stage was to cut away anything that I wanted to remain white (the scales on his back etc.) Anything left raised up in relief was inked and printed with yellow ink. I printed ten prints.
Next stage was to cut away anything that I wanted to remain yellow. Anything left raised up was inked and printed with green ink.
The knack is to get the registration spot on… I messed up three and ended up with
seven good prints. It’s a do or die process because once the block is cut away, the stages cannot be repeated!"
Sally designed the standing stone in Forbury Square. It was carved by Matt Doyle.
